Paleogeography is the study of the changing surface of Earth through time. Driven by plate tectonics, the configuration of the continents and ocean basins has been in constant flux. Plate tectonics...

Clumped-isotope-derived climate trends leading up to the end-Cretaceous mass extinction in northwest Europe
Abstract. Paleotemperature reconstructions linked to Deccan traps volcanic greenhouse gas emissions and associated feedbacks in the lead-up to the end-Cretaceous meteorite impact and extinction
Paleotemperature record of the Middle Devonian Kačák Episode
New δ18Oapatite data from the Carnic Alps and the Prague Synform are provided, which suggest that SSTs of the southern hemisphere low latitudes were higher than previously assumed for this time interval.
Living fast in the Triassic: New data on life history in Lystrosaurus (Therapsida: Dicynodontia) from northeastern Pangea
It is demonstrated that Lystrosaurus from China have larger average body sizes than their southern Pangean relatives and that their cranial morphologies are distinctive, and the osteohistological examination reveals sustained, rapid osteogenesis punctuated by growth marks in some, but not all, immature individuals from China.
Biodiversity across space and time in the fossil record
This research program promises to address key questions regarding the assembly of biodiversity, and the contributions of local-, regional- and global-scale processes to the diversification of life on Earth.
An Italian dinosaur Lagerstätte reveals the tempo and mode of hadrosauriform body size evolution
The Villaggio del Pescatore quarry (north-eastern Italy) stands as the most informative locality within the palaeo-Mediterranean region and represents the first, multi-individual Konservat-Lagerstätte type dinosaur-bearing locality in Italy, and is critically re-evaluated as early Campanian in age.
